Lawnking walk behind self propelled problem

Hi All,
I have a four year old lawnking walk behind self propelled mower .All
was well until about a month ago when operating the drive lever on the
handle the rear wheels would only jerk intermitantly and not drive the
mower correctly ,this has now resulted in loss of any propultion.I have
changed out the drive belt to the gear box for a new one ,and also
changed out the cable going to it ,but the problem is still there.Any
one got any other ideas on how to fix this frustating problem .
Thanks
Craig

Take the wheels apart. They most likely have a one direction gear drive. Basically this setup allows the wheels to be powered going forward but freely spin when not being powered.
The parts get gummed up with dirt or dry grease or sometimes they wear out. Hopefully you can just inspect, clean, re-grease and re-install.

Thanks for the reply,but the set up underneath is the vee belt goes from the blade pully to a pully on a gearbox which is mounted to the rear axle .When i operate the drive lever on the handle there is intermitent drive,or if i lift the back wheels up there is drive .Dont know if it is a fault with the gearbox or something else

What is intermittent? The axle rotation or the wheel rotation?
There may be a small mechanical type clutch/drive assembly located between each axle end and each wheel. Contained within the wheel.
